Record crowds attended this year’s Anzac Day services in Canungra.

The moving Dawn Service saw D J Smith Memorial Park packed, with many going on to the Canungra School of Arts Hall for a Gunfire Breakfast prepared by the Canungra Men’s Shed.

Men’s Shed Secretary Col Ford thanked Canungra FoodWorks for donating the food for the breakfast, despite facing a fire that closed the store from Monday last week.

The morning service began with the traditional march, led on horseback by Steve Noy in Australian Light Horse uniform.

He was followed by veterans, members of the emergency services and Canungra State School students.
